2020 Daily Fantasy Football: DraftKings Week 11 Picks, Sleepers

Week 11 has the potential to be a very lame and pukeworthy week. All the good, high scoring games are off the main slate and it looks like we’ll only have two matchups with a projected total over 50 points. It’s time to roll up our sleeves and get down to the nitty-gritty to find the best plays of what’s left for us to sift through.

Make sure to tune into The Fantasy Tailgate every Sunday at 11 AM EST for last-minute advice as a lot happens between writing this now and Sunday morning.

Anyways, onto the DraftKings NFL Week 11 Picks, Sleepers.

Let’s ride.

QUARTERBACKS

What Makes Lamar Jackson Special (Besides His Athleticism)? His Teammates Answer

  • Lamar Jackson ($7,300)
    • Despite putting up 22 DK points in a disappointing loss in Foxboro, Jackson was severely limited by both the weather conditions and the game script in which New England focused on ball possession and clock management. This looks like a perfect bounce-back spot for Lamar and the Ravens against a struggling Titans defense to reinforce their claim as one of the NFL’s best teams.
  • Cam Newton ($6,200)
    • While the passing numbers aren’t there yet, he’s finally finding a rhythm with some of his receivers. On the other hand, Newton’s rushing upside is monumental as he’s pushing toward a record pace in the rushing touchdown department. This game will be personal for Belichick facing the Texans, so look for no mercy and a lot of Cam usage hopefully around the goal line.

RUNNING BACKS

Mike Davis injury update: Panthers RB returns to game - DraftKings Nation

  • Dalvin Cook ($9,000)
    • This Vikings offense has really made it a point to feed Dalvin Cook early and often. Dallas has been pretty bad against opposing RBs so this matchup and game script fits Cook very nicely as a large home favorite against a struggling defense.
  • Mike Davis ($6,800)
    • Mike Davis was dealt a losing hand facing a stout run defense in Tampa Bay while Carolina’s offense was forced to throw a ton trying to keep up with Tom Brady. Now Davis finds a perfect bounce-back spot against a very bad Lions defense. Last week both Antonio Gibson and JD McKissic had very productive games against the Lions, and with McCaffrey sidelined this week, Davis will have full command of the backfield. If Bridgewater also misses this game, the Panthers could lean heavily on Davis and the run game.
  • D’Andre Swift ($6,400)
    • 11/20 update: Swift is questionable (concussion). On the flip side of Mike Davis’ game, Swift was finally set free last week as the starter, playing over 70 percent of the team’s offensive snaps. In a lead back role, Swift is very valuable thanks to his already decent high floor from his receiving work. The Panthers are also another bad defense that can be exploited, as we saw with Ronald Jones’ 98-yard touchdown run and 192 total yards.
  • Damien Harris ($5,700)
    • This Patriots team is built on running the football and that starts with Harris as the team’s clear best runner. He’s gone over the 100-yard mark in three of his six games this year and with Houston’s defense up next there’s a good chance he hits it again. Houston is that bad on the defensive side of the ball, but the big risk with Harris is his complete absence in the passing game and losing goal line touches to Newton and Burkhead.
  • JD McKissic ($5,200)
    • Believe it or not, McKissic was out there for 62 of Washington’s 88 offensive snaps last week. He had 15 targets last week as a weird target hog for Alex Smith. In the last two games, Smith has started, McKissic has 14 and 15 targets, while also getting a goal line rush for a score over Gibson. McKissic’s usage in the passing game is crazy and he’s always out there on the field, for some reason. Solid value against the Bengals this week.

WIDE RECEIVERS

Redskins News: Redskins Getting Ready To Face Another Mobile QB; Terry McLaurin is on the injury report, but that's not the injury to freak out about - Hogs Haven

  • Keenan Allen ($7,400)
    • Despite the touchdown, Allen flopped last week scoring ONLY 12 DK points. Allen has such a high floor, and against the Jets this week it’s super hard to believe he’ll have another unproductive day for the Chargers. Fire him back up for double-digit targets and hopefully 20+ DK points.
  • Terry McLaurin ($6,900)
    • While McKissic has been lighting it up for Smith in the backfield, McLaurin has been a force on the perimeter. He’s caught exactly 7 balls in four straight games while averaging close to 10 targets per game. He’s also close to 100 yards per game and has scored in two of the last four games. The team is desperate for offensive playmakers and McLaurin has been rock solid now facing a struggling Bengals defense.
  • Adam Thielen ($6,300)
    • While Justin Jefferson was racking up all the yardage between the 20 yard-lines, Thielen was a touchdown monster who really should have had three on the day against the Bears. A red zone machine, Thielen had a fantastic one-handed grab in the back of the end zone and now possesses one of the best WR/CB matchups this week against the Cowboys. His price would likely be much higher if he hadn’t just played on Monday night to avoid a price adjustment.
  • Diontae Johnson ($5,900)
    • It can be difficult to project which of the three Steelers receivers is going to be the guy each week, but I will almost always side with Diontae in this offense. Yes, he’s dealt with injuries, but in the games he’s made it through healthy, he’s been targeted 10,13,15,10, and 11 times. Those are crazy usage numbers and he’s the cheapest of the Steelers big three. With Jacksonville on deck this week, it’s hard to believe the Steelers will have any difficulty moving the ball through the air.
  • Travis Fulgham ($5,600)
    • Fulgham had one bad game being shadowed by James Bradberry and his price plummeted. The waiver wire hero has been a staple in Philadelphia and is as close to a lock as you can get for at least 6-75-1 each week. With Cleveland up next, Fulgham should avoid Denzel Ward, which means he can take full advantage of whatever Browns corner lines up against him this week.
  • Jakobi Meyers ($4,900)
    • The new WR1 and target hog in New England has been a favorite of Cam Newton since Julian Edelman’s injury. He’s recorded double-digit targets in two of his three games as the starter and he’s now likely to face Bradley Roby in coverage, who has been downright awful. It’s a little surprising his price isn’t in the mid-to-low 5k range, but for a guy getting this many looks against a bad defense, Meyers will be hard to pass on.

TIGHT ENDS

  • Mark Andrews ($4,900)
    • As noted, the Ravens look primed for a bounce-back against a struggling Titans defense. Jackson and Marquise Brown just can’t get on the same page, and Baltimore lost Nick Boyle to a gruesome knee injury. Andrews should be getting more looks to build off his 7-61 on 9 targets game last week. He’s shockingly the highest-priced tight end on this slate at just 4.9k which is bizarre.
  • Hayden Hurst ($4,400)
    • Hurst has had a high floor, low ceiling throughout the season, but has totaled 10+ DK points in four straight games now. Ridley being out has helped inflate his numbers a bit, but Hurst has worked his way into Matt Ryan’s third option. This should be a high scoring game, which should help Hurst get more targets.
  • Logan Thomas ($3,300)
    • My arch-nemesis at the position, I seemingly can’t figure out when to and not to play Thomas. Over 10 points in three of his last four games (guess which week I played him), he’s had a consistent target share in Washington’s offense while staying at a very low price for the tight end position. His snap numbers are super high and he’s still running routes at a crazy percentage.

DST

  • Pittsburgh Steelers ($4,600)
    • One of the NFL’s best defenses is going against Jake Luton in Jacksonville. They like to bring pressure to generate sacks and turnovers at a high rate.
  • Miami Dolphins ($3,400)
    • The Dolphins are on fire right now and they’ve made plenty of plays on defense and special teams. Drew Lock is dealing with injuries and might miss this week, but even if he plays he just threw four picks against the Raiders and continues to turn the ball over.
  • Denver Broncos ($2,400)
    • On the flip side, Denver hasn’t been great by any means and Tua looks very good in his early NFL career. It doesn’t make sense, but Denver is at home in high altitude, cold weather, and it’s the lowest projected scoring game of the week. This could also be Tua’s first true road game against the elements. The rookie is from Hawaii, played in the SEC at Alabama, and has played in Miami and LA thus far in the league. Punt defense of the week.
